The sad news just emerged that Venisha Brown, the daughter of the late iconic soul artist James Brown, passed away. The 53-year-old died on Wednesday at Augusta University Health Medical Center in Georgia.
According to reports, Venisha Brown died following complications from pneumonia. The James Brown Family Foundation posted a status about the tragic loss.
They wrote, “The family thanks everyone for their prayers and telephone calls. At this time we ask that you respect the privacy of the family.”

She wrote, “My beautiful big sis Venisha has received her angels wings…my heart is broken but I am comforted by the peace you now have!!! I love you sis.”
Many people posted tributes for Venisha, noting that she had a lot of the talent of her father. She was a singer, dancer, and activist.
